Legal professionals


Year of establishment

We are currently involved in a number of high profile, innovative projects such as the proposed Tanzanian LNG Plant and regularly advise corporate clients as both international and local counsel on high-value, cross-border project finance and M&A transactions, where the issues are complex and the structuring is crucial.

East Africa is poised for significant economic growth, fuelled by foreign direct investment in the energy sector and an increasing number of planned infrastructure projects. Increased investment will also in turn increase the number of transactions taking place.

Our unique offering allows us to deploy internationally qualified lawyers to work on-the-ground alongside local lawyers to provide an integrated Tanzanian and English legal service.

Additionally, our Dar es Salaam lawyers established the Regional Resource Centre to offer businesses a new approach to obtaining legal advice throughout the African continent, acting as a one-stop shop for all their legal needs with jurisdiction specific advice.
